10/04/2011, Last week we reported on rumors that Best Buy may be slashing the price of the HTC Flyer tablet to $300. It was suggested that this would be in response to Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet, which we now know is priced at a rather affordable $199. Well the good news is that it turns out those rumors are true.
09/30/2011, Along with the announcement of the LG Optimus Slider, Virgin Mobile has outed another Android handset, this time in the form of the HTC Wildfire S. It does not differ much from the HTC Wildfire S that debuted back in February, but for those who prefer not to be tied down on contract, perhaps Virgin Mobile’s version of the Wildfire S could be a handset worth considering. The handset will […]
09/30/2011, If you’re in the market for a smartphone featuring a physical QWERTY slideout keyboard, the good news is that Virgin Mobile has just announced the LG Optimus Slider, which as the name implies, is a smartphone that will sport a slideout keyboard, which we think will be great especially if you send out a lot of text messages/emails.
09/30/2011, If you’re a HTC Thunderbolt owner who was looking forward to the Android Gingerbread 2.3 update for your device, it looks like you’re in for bad news, or good news depending on how you look at it.

09/29/2011, The Samsung Stratosphere has been mentioned several times in the past.

09/29/2011, If the newly announced Amazon Kindle Fire’s price of $199 is still too expensive for your liking, a new tablet on the market dubbed the N5Zero could feature a price point that will satisfy those shopping on a budget.
09/26/2011, KDDI, one of the carriers in Japan, has recently unveiled their upcoming Winter lineup for phones. Some of the devices are feature phones, but some are smartphones, much like the Kyocera Digno ISW11K. The device was created specifically for the younger generation in mind, although we don’t see in what way it was done so – price point perhaps? Either way, the device will run on a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon […]
09/26/2011, If you’re a Nexus One user, the good news is that it looks like Google is rolling out an update for you guys! Granted the device is old and has been superseded by the Nexus S, we guess that Google did not forget about you guys out there and has rolled out the Android Gingerbread 2.3.6 update last night.

09/25/2011, SAM Firmware alongside some of those who were involved in the DarkyROM have stepped forward with a rather interesting titbit of news – we’re talking about a leaked version of Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread that sports a build date of September 15th, and this particular ROM is meant for the Samsung Galaxy S2. Interestingly enough, most of the Galaxy S2 units out there, if not all, still run on Android 2.3.3 […]

09/22/2011, Prior to today, the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY had plenty of potential – but it was somewhat limited due to the lack of a decent software update. All of that is set to change now, with the latest Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread firmware update being announced for the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, where it will also deliver 720p HD video recording capability with continuous autofocus for that added zest in your […]
09/21/2011, A while back the Samsung SHV-E120L was spotted on a NenaMark test. Not much was known at that time apart from its processor, which is a 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor, and its display resolution, which was listed as a pretty impressive 1280×720. Now it appears that more details surrounding the device has been revealed thanks to a leak, and it seems that it may be gunning for the LG LU6200. The […]
